Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) usable as an
interactive login shell and as a shell script command
processor. Of the standard shells, zsh most closely resembles
ksh but includes many enhancements. Zsh has command-line editing,
built-in spelling correction, programmable command completion,
shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and a
host of other features.

2014-11-25 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
zsh (5.0.7-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* [ab70e9dc] Pre-Depend on dpkg >= 1.17.14 explicitly for using
symlink_to_dir with relative symlinks (Closes: #770226)
2014-11-13 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
zsh (5.0.7-4) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Simon McVittie ]
* [991d536c] Make zsh source package binNMU-safe (Closes: #768937)
+ Do not use dh_installdocs --link-doc=zsh-common in
architecture-dependent packages
+ Symlink zsh-common documentation files into /usr/share/doc/zsh
+ Migrate /usr/share/doc/zsh and /usr/share/doc/zsh-dev from symlink
to directory using dpkg-maintscript-helper
[ Axel Beckert ]
* [7b632623] Simplify Simon's patch by making /usr/share/doc/zsh/doc a
symlink to ../zsh-common/ in the zsh binary package. Avoids unpack
errors probably caused by having _two_ binary packages containing the
directory which was previously a symlink. (See the log of #768937.)
* [0e03e623,ad143a67] Add Pre-Depends: ${misc:Pre-Depends} for using
dpkg-maintscript-helper's symlink_to_dir.
* [af8ab9de] Also remove zsh4 alternative for rzsh (Closes: #768241)
* [353e05ab] Add a post-jessie TODO list to the source package
2014-10-21 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
zsh (5.0.7-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Upload to unstable again
* [5409996b ff.] Remove zsh4 and zsh4-static from list of alternatives
in the according postinst scripts. Also raise priorities of zsh5 and
zsh5-static alternatives by 1 so that they have a higher priority than
the old ones. (Closes: #766015)
* [29ce7d34] Mention https://wiki.debian.org/Zsh in README.Debian
* [b33dd34f] Switch the zsh and zsh-common binary package stanzas in
debian/control to get README.Debian installed again. (dh_installdocs
installs it into the first binary package listed in debian/control.)
2014-10-13 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
zsh (5.0.7-2) experimental; urgency=low
* [0e36f80d ff.] Workflow documentation: Many updates
* [438969ff] Add zsh4(-static) wrapper scripts to ease switch to zsh5
(Closes: #707760)
* [180ad946] Add lintian overrides for unusual-interpreter in zsh4
wrapper script
* [2bc52e92] Drop prebuild target from debian/rules (unused)
* [8ece55fe] Add a get-orig-source target to debian/rules
* [503d6807] Add debian/bin/commit2quilt for easier cherry-picking
* Cherry-pick a bunch of post-5.0.7 fixes from upstream:
+ [46859b9c] a03227de/33405: vcs_info: Make sure maxexports is set
when VCS_INFO_set is called
+ [849017f2] 22c4ea42/33403: be conservative about redirecting
_call_program stderr, the caller may have already done so
+ [6f309d99] 605a73e4/33429: disallow non-integer values for HISTSIZE
and SAVEHIST of "fc -p", and fix crash on zero values for same
+ [4a370a5f] 521313b4/33429: Tests for previous patch
+ [adb27914] 2d14c085/33445: fix handling of -s when combined with -i
at shell invocation
* [35069efe] Add patch by Bart Schaefer which should further mitigate #759870
2014-10-08 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
zsh (5.0.7-1) experimental; urgency=low
* [208bdede] New upstream release
+ [2d470422] Drop all cherry-picked patches
+ Cherry-pick 9982ab6f ("unposted: ChangeLog entry for 33365") as
patch as it adds one missing (and not unimportant) changelog entry
for the 5.0.7 release.
* [a563abd0] Add an initial README.source file
* [6696aa79, ff.] Revamp and update packaging workflow documentation and
convert it to Markdown.
* [97cc54f6] Drop patch2quilt helper script (unused)
* [b605fa17] Move all other helper scripts from debian/ to debian/bin/.
